Relax in Old San Juan

What a great day today was. The weather was perfect, it was my first Friday off (I have off Fridays from now until September) and I decided to pick the kids up early from school (just an hour) JUST BECAUSE! Way to rack up "Mom Points". My daughter has a friend sleeping over and they just left for a walk to Dairy Queen, we had a yummy Tostado dinner and the evening is still young which means I can keep scrapping! I've already done three layouts today and have already finished the laundry for the weekend, cleaned up the house last night and this morning and have very little to do the rest of the weekend except relax (and hopefully find a rental home to move to!)

This layout is John hanging out in the harbor in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico while we were on our family cruise back in 09. Seems like just yesterday! I used Pink Paislee Bayberry Cottage papers for this page. Who would have thought they could work for this theme but the colors are so soothing. The letters for the title are also Pink Paislee. On the tag they are My Minds Eye and Glitz. The flowers I got in a baggie at Joanns and the muslin yo yo flower I just whipped up for this layout. As usual, I was trying to get more than one challenge in one a layout! This one is for the Supply List Challenge at A Cherry On Top - Sewing (faux or real), Fabric and Shipping Tag. I used the new sketch at Stuck On You Sketches. I really like this sketch and will probably use it again for a different theme!
